Pre Construction Specialist Expands Team Following Offfice Move
Thu 04 Aug 2016
Wakefield based pre construction specialists, Central Alliance, are flying high after making seven key appointments to strengthen the technical and business teams.
And to celebrate the company move to larger premises at Wakefield 41 Business Park earlier this year the specialist surveying and geo technical company commissioned an aerial view of the city to present to Councillor Peter Box CBE leader of Wakefield Council when he officially opened their office.
Chief Executive of Central Alliance, Peter Bevils said an aerial photograph seemed an appropriate way of marking the company’s success and growth.
“Central Alliance uses state of the art surveying equipment to provide unique insight to enable efficient developments and embed safety into 21st century capital construction projects for commercial growth and the public good. Presenting Coun Box with an aerial view of Wakefield provides a bird’s eye view of what it looks like and its potential for future generations,”
Since moving to Wakefield 41 Central Alliance has boosted its technical team with the appointment of William Mortimer, assistant geo-environmental engineer, Gerard Furness, land surveyor, Harrison Clarke, apprentice surveyor and Ferhat Gungor as assistant driller.
To support business growth Simon Firmin has been appointed Finance Director. Previously Chief Financial Officer at Mabey Hire he brings extensive knowledge and understanding of the construction sector to Central Alliance as it looks to diversify in new markets with more extensive specialist services.
The line up of new joins is completed with Huw Mullen, who joins as transport manager to direct the company’s logistics and Bev Tuke as software manager will help support integration of pioneering systems into customer networks.
Founded in 2014 by Peter Bevils and Richard Pidcock, Central Alliance has already established itself as first choice partner for contractors on major capital projects in rail, defence, oil and gas, utilities, transport and construction.
Recent projects include geotechnical and slope stability work at historic Harbury Cutting, Leamington Spa, for Network Rail and investigations at 35 Sainsburys car parks ahead of installation of click and collect depots. Central Alliance is looking for further growth thanks having being appointed preferred supplier to leading construction companies including AMCO, BAM NuttallGroup, J Murphy and Sons Limited and P J Carey .
The new appointments mean that Central Alliance is now uniquely placed to deliver even more high profile value, surveying and geotechnical contracts in sectors including construction, energy and rail networks. The larger offices on the M1/M62 will allow Central Alliance to expand its own team and roll out its client training a key feature of its construction safety offer as well as provide a versatile and accessible location for meetings, presentations and events.
Cllr Peter Box, leader of Wakefield Council, said:
“The expansion of Central Alliance is great news for Wakefield. The company’s use of leading technologies will continue to make our district attractive to new businesses and developers.”
Pete Bevils said:
“We are delighted with our success over the last year and we are thrilled to be expanding our team and office. These appointments represent the beginning of a substantial investment in the future of the company and Yorkshire.”
Rachel Massey, Marketing Director of Central Alliance added:
“We have had a number of new people join the team recently in readiness for the delivery of our 2016 plan and the new office substantially increases the depth and quality of services we can offer our clients. We are really proud to be part of an expanding Wakefield business community and of the teamwork with local suppliers that has made this exciting move possible”.
